Crazy Esther is warm, surrounded by friends and ambling around belly deep in green grass.

I am sure Crazy Esther is a guardian sheep angel for Renny.

I’m so sorry about Esther. I know her grass is green and tall.

Camp said...

Oh sweet Crazy Esther...how lucky we readers were to know you.....through the eyes of a pure soul like your caregiver Sara.

Pam said...

Oh, Sara, what sad news. Right before I read the post I hung sleigh bells on the door. I wonder if she got her wings when they rang?

Bless her heart, Crazy Esther had a great life and a wonderful shepherd while she was here. What more could any sheep ask for?

Crazy Esther,, you were just knitting with her not too long ago..She was even giving you advice on your knitting..
She is in a warm place now with lots of green grass and all her friends welcomed her to the new pasture..

Sorry to hear about Crazy Esther. She was a blessed sheep and I'm sure blessed you are well. It's sure hard to see them go on.
Take care,

I am so sorry for your loss. She is in good company and I'm sure she will be watching over all the Renny's of the world.

You certainly gave her a wonderful home. I'm so sorry, Sara.

Michelle said...

Oh dear; I'm so sorry. I'm catching up here late tonight; I just watched Renny's video and smiled - and then read this. But how blessed she was to live with you, and die with you....

Donna said...

So sorry, Sara....I really hate losing an animal, but do take comfort in believing that they really are in a place with deep green grass and are cavorting with their friends. Thank you for sharing Crazy Esther with us....

Jody said...

Right now I am crying for Esther and for the loss of my own two precious little sheepy angels .

The Odyssey Farm said...

Hugs. You gave her the gift of love. God speed, Esther.

Eleanor P said...

I have this vision of all the animals I've loved coming down and walking to heaven with me when my time comes.

Crazy Esther will be waiting for you. (along with all of the others). Thanks for the chance to meet her before she died. I know she is romping and boinging around in heavenly pastures!

Alice said...

You showed great compassion for Crazy Esther in her life and her passing. Thank you for sharing her with us that we may learn by your example. {{{hugs}}}

melanie said...

So sorry...she will be watching over you and all the sheep now from a much better place...

I need orange said...

I am sorry for your loss.

dibear said...

So sorry to hear of Crazy Esther's passing. She has moved on to greener pastures.

Dreaming said...

That type of post is a hard one to write. Difficult, too, to respond.
Bless you and all you do for all your fuzzy friends. Great memories and stories keep all of our friends in our hearts.

Shirley said...

Hugs to you. Love the memorial photo.

Vickie said...

Sara, my sister Pam told me the sad news. I hope Crazy Esther is keeping warm and happy in heaven.

Your opinion, this your opinion

Mom L said...

It's so hard to lose a beloved animal as they give so much to us with so few demands. You'll miss her, but maybe she wanted to make room for Rennie?

Blessings of comfort and sweet memories, Sara, with love.

small farm girl said...

So sorry to hear it. She will be missed.

KC said...

I am so sorry about Crazy Esther. I wish you peace and love now and always.
I would love to hear the story of how Crazy Esther got her name. Also, I'm curious of your "farm miracle" that was on your tweet.

I'm so sorry, Sara! It's so very hard to lose those animals we love. For me, well I'm glad she lived with you (if I were a sheep I would want to live with you.)

"Only people who are capable of loving strongly can also suffer great sorrow, but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract their grief and heals them." -- Leo Tolstoy

Barbara's Spot on the Blog said...

Of course they go to heaven. We even have it in writing. "The lion shall lie down with the lamb".

Blessings on you and I'm sure Esther is watching from above.

Shelley said...

God has another sheep to shepherd. Bless Crazy Esther.

patchworkfibers said...

It's so hard to lose the old girls. RubyBelle saved her a spot under an apple tree :-)

Jenny Glen said...

I feel awful! I read this the other day and didn't realy comprehend that Esther had died. I didn't mean to ignore your sorrow. I thought you meant Kentucky was her heaven. I'm so sorry for you but I'm sure Grandma is showing her around and the two of them are young again and kicking and bucking like lambs in the spring sun.

Leah said...

I am so sorry to read that Esther has left Kentucky. I am certain she is off to greener pastures, in spite of that being incomprehensable to me. (There cannot be anything greener than pastures in Kentucky.)

I admire your courage to walk with her so closely through her last days.

I am so sorry to hear about Ester;(

Equal blessings here... She was blessed to have YOU Sara, and you were blessed to have HER. Thank you for sharing her with all of us.
